Family

Ethanolamine utilisation protein EutH (IPR007441)

Short name: EutH

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

None.

Family relationships

None.

Description

Protonated ethanolamine does not enter cells, while uncharged ethanolamine diffuses freely across the membrane. External concentrations of the two forms vary with the pH. It has been shown in Salmonella enterica that EutH is a membrane protein that facilitates diffusion of protonated ethanolamine [PMID: 15466042].
